Used 20ft Open Top Containers
Why choose an Open Top Shipping Container
Used 20ft Open Top Shipping Containers provide two access points, they have two sets of standard double-doors (one at each end of the container) making it easy to access both ends of the shipping container.
Open Top Shipping Containers are typically purchased by clients who want improved access to the contents of their container. Having an Open top also makes open top container easy to convert for two separate uses e.g. part storage, part office. For example a standard tunnel container, i.e. a 20ft container with double doors at each end could be partitioned down the middle, leaving two 10ft x 8ft x 8ft 6″ halves – each with their own access – one half could then be converted and used for office space and the other half used for secure part/equipment storage.
Tunnel Containers are ideal for storage, since both sets of double doors can be used, items can be loaded from both ends, making it easier to get stored goods into and out of the container.
Converting an Open Top Shipping Containers
Open Top Shipping Containers can be converted in many different ways, just as you’d convert a standard container.
We have previously modified open top Containers to install lighting and side windows.
Due to their construction material (corten steel) tunnel containers are ideal for secure storage – for example, by installing an internal partition it’s easy to create two secure storage units from one tunnel container.
Double Access/Double Door containers are also often converted to provide secure site access, installing a turnstile or manual secure entry checkpoint as users pass through the container.
